My Ricoh KR-5 won't keep the film door closed. How


The film doors in most 35mm SLR's is spring loaded with a release from the rewind knob. Chances are your spring has lost tension, slipped out of place, or the teeth that grab the door have been damaged. You can always use the handyman's secret weapon (duct tape) to fix the problem, but if you're looking for a more permanent and less gooey and unattractive solution you're going to need to find a shop.

If there aren't any locally, you can find some online, or google KEH Camera if you're not sure who online is reputable. It'll run you $35 for a repair estimate which is waived if you decide to have the work done. Keep in mind some parts, for some cameras, are hard or impossible to come by so your model may or may not be able to be repaired, or may be priced outside of what you're willing to pay to have repaired.

Where and how do you insert film on a minolta vectis 2000 camera


Essentially, you probably don't as APS film is no longer made and is getting difficult to get processed if you do get some old stock.

But like on all APS cameras, there's a lock on one end of the camera and usually you turn it to open a small door on the bottom of the camera. The APS film cassette gets pushed into the compartment and when you close the door and the camera *should* wind the film ready for shooting and lock the door so that you cannot open it until the film is rewound. The cameras are entirely battery dependent and many used CR2 lithium batteries which are disproportionately expensive and hard to find except from online suppliers.

Unfortunately APS was a badly engineered system from the start, so the cameras didn't tend to last long before suffering major faults. You may wish to bear that fact in mind as those faults won't show until you load a film and any film you do find will likely cost more than you can buy another APS camera for. They're widely available for free or for about a £ or two from almost any charity shop (not from the one I work in though as I always put them straight into the recycling bin as they're a liability).

I have a brand new Olympia EL 1124 New in the box.How much can I list it for sale? What is the price of it? it was a gift no receipt.


The EL 1124 is considered a "toy camera" and despite a "List Price" of $300, these cameras routinely sell new for between $10 and $20 (source: eBay, Amazon.com). I bought 20 of them for about $7 each and gave them away as door prizes at two affairs. The so-called list price made them look like great giveaways.

Owner's Manual for a Fuji Discovery 400 Tele Plus


Here's the owner's manual (link below) .

NOTE -> the DL-400 extracts the entire roll of film from the canister as soon as you close the back. Just the REVERSE of what you would expect. Then every time you take a picture, the camera rewinds the exposed (single shot) picture back into the cannister. When loading the film, YOU MUST PULL OUT ENOUGH FILM FROM THE CANNISTER TO GO ACROSS THE ENTIRE BACK OF THE CAMERA. There are 7 little notches on the botton of the cover. You won't see them until you open the back. The film MUST be extended far enough to reach the notches.

Does the sigma 70-300mm fit nikon n4004?


Specification for that model here - http://www.freebase.com/view/en/nikon_f401 uses the Nikon F-mount
The sigma was sold with various lens mounts and so could be used on any camera - do you know what mount you have on the Sigma - do you also know if its Auto focus AF as the Camera needs AF.

Lock broke an door for film


Look on Ebay for another one. Either use the new one for parts(unless it works fine) or use it as your main camera and keep the parts one for spares.
This might be a good time to switch to 35mm.

I'M GOING TO ASK IF YOU HAVE THE CAMERAS MANUAL? IF YOU DON'T, I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU GO TO THE MINOLTA X300 SITE ON THE WEB AND READ THE ONLINE MANUAL FOR YOUR CAMERA. YOU CAN ALSO PRINT PARTS OF IT YOU FEEL YOU NEEDTO HAVE FOR REFERENCE. THIS CAN BE VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU PLAN ON TAKING ANY REALLY GOOD LOOKING PICTURES. I CAN TELL YOU HOW TO LOAD IT NOW BUT YOU CAN GO TO THE SITE A LOOK AT IT BEING DONE AFTERWARDS, BASICAL YOU PULL UP ON THE FILM WINDER THAT IS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CAMERA YOU ARE AT THE BACK OF THE CAMERA. SO PULL THISS CRANK UP THAT RELEASES THE DOOR AND IT SWINGS OPEN AND YOU CAN SEE THE OTHER REEL AND KNOB ON THE RIGHT SIDE , TAKE THE FILM OUT OF THE PACKAGE AND PLACE THE FILM IN THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CAMERA UNDER THE LEFT CRANK WINDER WITH THE FILM TAB COMING OUT ALONG THE BOTTOM SIDE LOWER THE CRANK HANDLE INTO THE FILM CAN TOPUNTIL IT SEATS OVER THE NOTCH. NEXT PULL JUST ENOUGH FILM TO THE RIGHT TO REACH THE RIGHT SIDE CRANK SPOOL. IT HAS A TAB HOLDER ON THE BOTTOM WHERE YOU STICK THE END OF THE FILM INSIDE THE SLOT AND TURN THE CRANK SO ONE OF THE TEETH GRABS A NOTCHIT THE SIDE OF THE FILMWHEN IT DOES, JUST WIND IT A COUPLE OF TURNS AND YOUR DONE,THEFILM ADVANCE LEVER SHOULD BE MOVED NOW UNTIL IT REACHES 1 AND THEN CLOSE THE FILM DOOR AND PUSH DOWN THE LEFT WINDER CRANK TO LOCK THE DOOR SHUT,GIVE THE CRANK A COUPLE OF TURNS BACK TO TAKE UP ANY SLACK AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOUT! I'D PRINT THIS OF AND HAVE SOMEONE READ IT AS YOU DO IT AND IT WILL BE EASIER. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
